Chelsea & Mourinho 'apologises unreservedly' Eva Carneiro after she threatens to expose embarrassing dossier of texts

It is a big win for former Chelsea team doctor, Eva Carneiro as deal was done in a back corridor of the court and Chelsea then issued a statement saying it 'regretted the circumstances' which led to her leaving and 'apologises unreservedly to her and her family for the distress caused', Daily Mail reports.

The statement added that Jose Mourinho thanked Dr Carneiro for the 'excellent and dedicated support' she provided and wished her a 'successful career'. But when asked 'Why no apology from you Jose?' by MailOnline outside the court today he refused to comment and grinned as he was rushed away in a waiting car.

The new Manchester United boss was due to give evidence in Croydon next week and had been warned he faces two days of questions

The terms of the settlement will remain secret but yesterday the tribunal heard Chelsea offered £1.2million to silence Ms Carneiro, who they said made 'scandalous' claims about working for manager Jose Mourinho.

But she rejected the money – more than four times her annual salary – and the offer of her 'dream job' back.

In a statement issued on their club website, Chelsea said: 'Chelsea Football Club is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Dr Carneiro which brings her employment tribunal proceedings against the club and Jose Mourinho to an end.

'The club regrets the circumstances which led to Dr Carneiro leaving the club and apologises unreservedly to her and her family for the distress caused.

'Dr Carneiro has always put the interests of the club's players first. Dr Carneiro is a highly competent and professional sports doctor. She was a valued member of the club's medical team and we wish her every success in her future career.'We wish to place on record that in running onto the pitch Dr Carneiro was following both the rules of the game and fulfilling her responsibility to the players as a doctor, putting their safety first.

'Jose Mourinho also thanks Dr Carneiro for the excellent and dedicated support she provided as First Team Doctor and he wishes her a successful career.'

In a statement Dr Carneiro said: 'I am relieved that today we have been able to conclude this tribunal case. It has been an extremely difficult and distressing time for me and my family and I now look forward to moving forward with my life.

'My priority has always been the health and safety of the players and fulfilling my duty of care as a doctor. In running onto the pitch to treat a player, who requested medical attention, I was following the rules of the game and fulfilling my medical responsibilities.

'I would like to thank everyone who has supported me including my husband, family and friends and members of the football community.'
